[FPS Benchmarks] Warframe on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (130W) and RTX 3070 (85W) – the RTX 3070 (130W) wins with ease

Warframe is a popular free-to-play game that is available on Steam. This title is something like a third-person shooter that has RPG elements as well. The game was released back in 2013 but it has been updated regularly and the developer is adding new content too.

The graphic part of the game is based on the Evolution engine which looks somehow fine from a modern perspective (but it’s not mindblowing beautiful). However, the engine has its advantages – it’s light on system resources, and even some low-end iGPUs like Intel UHD G1 or UHD 630 can run this game on Low.

This means that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (130W) and RTX 3070 (85W) can squeeze a lot of frames out of this game so let’s the exact numbers.

It’s not a surprise that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (130W) is the winner in this comparison. Same hardware, bigger TGP, higher frequencies, and it wins with ease. But hey, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (85W) isn’t that slow – 221 FPS with maxed-out visuals is probably enough for most people.
